General Info

Hello everyone,

In this live interactive online workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of creating 3D models with polygon modeling techniques. Lectures will walk you through the various production techniques of creating both simple and complex forms. We will cover the basic toolset in Cinema 4D, and you will benefit from lectures about the technical and aesthetic issues that modelers face while modeling man-made objects.

This workshop is a project-based class, where we are creating a full-scale robotic design, so you’ll be learning techniques through the development of your own assets with increasing complexity.

How it works?

This workshop is 5-week interactive training and you can register or apply anytime. Once you register, you will begin with the training on the following Monday.

Every Monday during this 5 weeks, you will receive access to the training videos and project files. You are free to go through the content at a time convenient to you. Along with the video content, comes weekly assignment or homework file. Each assignment has an important element necessary to continue training that follows into the next week.

To get help with the assignments, there is a private Discord group that is open to you to ask any questions. Possibility to request a personalized video with feedback specific to your questions and your workflow during this workshop is also available.

Common Questions
How can I benefit from this workshop?

If you´re interested into a more guided way of learning where every step of the way you are receiving feedback on your progress, with tips and tricks specific to your questions and workflow, then this workshop would be for you.

Are there possibilities for group training (more than one person in the same group)?

Yes, there are. Feel free to use the contact form below to get more information on prices for a group training.

Why do we need to compete assignments?

Weekly assignments are there only for you, to see and test your mesh problem-solving abilities. If you feel you´re struggling with a current assignment, we have a Discord group where we can solve problems together. That way everyone gets instant feedback on current progress.

When can I begin with the training?

You can start anytime. New content is available every Monday, each week for 4 weeks. If you sign up on Tuesday, you still can manage to catch up with the content. However, if you sign up on Wednesday, content will be available to you following Monday.

Do I need to have any basic knowledge of 3D modeling?

It is a plus to understand some basics. In this workshop we will focus more on 3D modeling production techniques and principles, and focus less on explaining the general modeling tools in Cinema 4D. Some tools will be covered however.

What is the difference between tutorial and this workshop?

This workshop is interactive training while tutorial is non interactive content. Workshop is 4 week event in which your efforts will be a part of the training to fully take advantage of this format.

How long do I have access to the workshop training?

For now, there is no expiry date. However, 1 on 1 feedback and assignment reviews are available only during the workshop period, which is lasting 4 weeks.
